Storyline

The north of Sweden in 1902. A team of railroad men are building a rail road from Luleå at the Bay of Bothnia to Narvik at the Norwegian Sea. One of the newest workers, Valfrid from the south of Sweden, is not accepted by neither Stora Ballong, the informal leader of the workers, nor the others. They refuse to talk to him but instead Valfrid gets help from the sworn enemy of the railroad workers: the greedy drugstore owner Blom. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Goofs

During the winter montage, the railroad workers are seen performing their duties in broad daylight. However, by this time in the movie, they are far north of the Arctic Circle, so it would actually be night around the clock during that time of the year. See more »

As odd as it may seem - a childhood favourite
23 September 2002 | by (Karlstad, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film was a childhood favourite of mine, as odd as it may seem; an old b/w Swedish film, not even a comedy, which is my preference. But I've always been fascinated by trains and I suppose that's what did it. However, in recent years, I've also come to notice that the acting and the plot are also quite good, not to mention the wonderful music, which makes this a watchable film.
